Comedian and radio personality Chad Zumock, who was charged with drunken driving after crashing his car into a tree in Lakewood on Friday, has been fired from his job at WMMS.
The 37-year-old co-host of the Alan Cox Show on WMMS, who lives just a couple blocks away from the incident, was not injured in the early morning crash. However, he refused to take a breathalyzer test.
Cleveland.com reported that Zumock’s arrest “voided a contract he had signed with Clear Channel Communications," the parent company of the radio station.
Alan Cox announced the news over the air on Monday.
Zumock was charged with operating a vehicle under the influence, failure to control and a seatbelt violation.
His bond was set at 10 percent of $3,000, and he was released.
Zumock was also arrested in Kent in 2008 for drunken driving, prior to joining WMMS.
